Accredited, classical online high school credit

Our students receive a great education and graduate with accredited diplomas.

As part of the Williamsburg Learning school system, Williamsburg Academy is accredited by Cognia* and the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC).

Cognia is one of the largest organizations of educational professionals in the world and accrediting partner to over 30,000 schools and school systems. Williamsburg Academy will remain accredited through June 2027 when we will participate in the review process once more to renew our certificate.

ACS WASC, a world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States, provides assistance to schools worldwide, primarily in California, Hawaii, Guam, Asia, the Pacific Region, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. Their services extend to over 5,000 public, independent, church-related, and proprietary pre-K-12 and adult schools.

All credit earned at Williamsburg Academy is recognized by all other schools accredited by Cognia and ACS WASC. It is also recognized by most high schools accredited by other organizations. Most public and private high schools do recognize and accept transfer credit from Williamsburg Academy, an accredited online school offering a high school diploma to graduates.

Colleges and universities (selective and nonselective) have recognized credits and high school diplomas earned at Williamsburg Academy. Our graduates have been admitted to some of the most selective universities in the United States.
